New Friend on Friday

I have a new friend! He is my new woofie cousin Mason. We were all very sad when my woofie cousin Sonny went to the Rainbow Bridge in January. His family misses him lots and they thought that their home needed another rescued woofie to make it full again.

So, after halfheartedly looking for another furry family member, they found "Perry" a one year old mixed woofie who had spent his whole life in shelters. So, Saturday, they went to meet him and...brought him home!

Perry needed a new name for his new life and after a lot of thinking they chose Mason. Mommy and my grandbeans went to meet him on Wednesday night.

My grandbeans got him a new tug of war toy and some treats and mommy got him a "woofie friendly cake." He loved it!!


He is so cute and sweet. He fetches, sits and shakes. When you say "Bang" and cock your finger at him he lays down and rolls over. He is just a happy boy and mommy says his ears flop really cute when he runs.

Well, I'm off to scratch the carpet and take a nap now. Mommy is working from home so I'll be expending a lot of energy to ignore her.

Mommy has been really busy on 2 big projects for work and a fundraiser for the shelter she volunteers at. We'll be settling down in a week or so!

Please keep all our Florida friends in your thoughts as Tropical Storm Faye is getting them all wet!

Hi, Mr. Hendrix, and thank you for your welcome! There were lots of nice woofies looking for homes at the shelters where I lived, so I'm very happy for Mason, though he looks a bit big for me.
Hugs and sandpaperkisses, Nina

I love to hear about rescued woofies! (as long as they are not in my house.)
What a Lucky Dog!

Mr. H...I am pretty sure I outweigh you now. In your Widebody photos, your stomach muscle does not hang over onto the floor like mine does.
Last time I weighed I was 11lbs, but that was two months ago and I no longer am allowed to roam the yards and run free. You know what lack of exercise can do to girl's figure. It is NOT my fault.
Cake, please!

Your family's dog looks very nice, I have current issues with my fmaily's dogs. "Ignoring" really is exhausting. I could use a nap myself.

Shadow / Molly said...

Yea Mason is cute even if he is a woofie. Just dont tell Jake that, I like tormenting him!

Mason looks adorable. Thats what miewmie says anyhow. I think he looks great fun and I'm really pleased he has found such a good home after such a rotten start.

Camie's Kitties said...

Your new woofie cousin Mason sounds like he is going to have a great new life. He must be pretty smart to know all those tricks especially since he lived in a shelter all his life. That looks like a wonderful cake.
